My Wishlist : BMW S 1000 RR

BMW S 1000 RR is a sports bike which was first introduced in April 2008 in Munich and was made by BMW Motorrad to compete in 2009 Superbike World Championship. Seeing its huge success, the commercial production was started in 2010.

 The S 1000 RR represents a milestone in electronic rider safety: ultra-lightweight ABS (2.5kg), which can be used in conjunction with the extremely efficient DTC dynamic traction control (available as an optional extra). it has fine control intervals, is virtually imperceptible in its operation, and is light enough to satisfy fans of low-weight bikes.

It has DTC – transparent traction control. This dynamic feature reacts reliably and efficiently to speed, lean angle, and operating mode (rain, sport, race, or slick). It was specifically designed to be as effective on the road as it is on the racetrack.

Its radially mounted Brembo brake calipers help it to decelerate. Not only do brake disks mounted directly on the wheel rims look good, they also reduce unsprung mass.

It has an extreme bore/stroke ratio (80x49.7mm) and rocker arm-actuated valves for great stability at high engine speeds, compact construction and lightweight design – a genuine powerhouse which demonstrates its considerably ability at all output levels.

Its intelligently positioned slits behind the fairing minimize turbulence to allow the rider to maintain a relaxed head position, optimum air-flow around rider and bike ensures stability at top speed, while efficient flow-through makes for maximum cooling. Combined with plenty of eye-catching design features – that’s the way to do it.
If you want to be fast, you have to adopt a relaxed racing posture. The way you sit must allow you to concentrate on the essential aspects of motorcycling – maximum enjoyment and perfect control. The looser you are on the bike, the easier everything else will be. Gone are the days when you had to bend yourself flat. Today's modern posture means you are actually sitting more in the bike than on it.

I so so much wish to own this bike someday...
